I'm dieting so I used a spray or two of canola pan spray instead of the butter skim milk doubled the cinnamon and sugar but used Splenda instead chopped up half a banana into the mixture and used 100% whole wheat bread 50 calories a slice. An extra sprinkle of cinnamon and Splenda before microwaving made a sweet crunch on top. This gives you around 250 calories so you could add juice or a smoothy as well. There's also lots of for room to experiment with other spices and mix in's. I liked the addition of fresh fruit but nuts chips or dried fruits with other spice combos would work too. Just a cup and spoon to wash when you are done! Read More

The whole purpose of anything you cook in a mug in the microwave is to make eating quick and easy. This recipe does that with a few easy-to-remember ingredients that cook up just fine in the microwave. The cinnamon is perfect for me but if I were to fix this again I would add a little more sugar. Like another reviewer I stirred the bread into the liquid. Seems as though it would set better if all cubes were slightly moist. Most mug recipes are for eating quickly or on-the-go but this morning I wanted to treat myself so I turned my French toast cup out onto a pretty tea and toast set and slowly enjoyed my breakfast.

It was quick and tasty. My 15 mo old liked it too. I made just as stated but I stirred the bread around instead of just pressing it into the egg mixture; wanted to make sure it all got coated. It took 90 seconds exactly in my microwave. I poured some real maple syrup on top and it tasted somewhat like french toast. I'll make it again sometime. update- I've made this a few times now and I leave out the butter and just use cooking spray in the mug and I leave out the sugar. Comes out perfect. So quick just pour some syrup on top and eat it straight from the mug. Read More

It was pretty tasty though towards the bottom of the cup it was a bit soggy. It might of been because i used whole wheat bread but it was still good. I mixed in the bread like some others did but I think that just made it into a bowl of mush... I'll tweak the recipe next time I make it: probably add more bread and won't mix it as much. Read More

I made this with two end slices of whole wheat bread and it hit the spot! I was in the mood for something sweet but didn't want to get the pan out. I added some walnuts and chocolate chips between the two ripped up slices of bread and I think the added crunch from the nuts helped a lot. I doubled the sugar and actually dumped it out of the cup onto a plate to eat...doing that I found the egg was still quite runny at the bottom so I microwaved it on the plate for another 30 seconds. All in all a nice easy way to have french toast without too much hassle! Read More

I used this recipe as a base and instead of cinnamon I used chocolate chips. Turned out good but I should have mixed it more probably. Helpful recipe! Read More

Yummy and easy! I put in extra sugar and left out the cinnamon and vanilla. (With real maple syrup on top who needs those?) Next time I'm gonna try throwing in some bacon:) Thank you! Read More
